Electronic music exponents Brains prepare for the most exciting musical adventure of their career so far, taking to the Müpa stage in the company of a symphony orchestra having thoroughly rearranged their repertoire of hits for this special occasion.Hungary's Brains have been the most successful group in their genre for years - a constant main-stage fixture of summer festivals, while crowds of 7,000 have danced to their hits on several occasions in the Budapest Park. In spring 2016, they won the Fonogram Award for "Electronic Album of the Year” and the Petőfi Music Prize for "Best Instrumentation.” While the backbone of their records consists of songs with a drum ‘n' bass foundation, their concerts meld almost all styles of electronic music from dubstep to drumstep, and from electro to trap. They have collaborated with international performers on a number of occasions, both on records and in concert, with regular guests including Kosheen vocalist Sian Evans, while also cutting tracks with the likes of Dynamite MC (ex-Roni Size), Topcat and Tenor Fly.
Although they've received several similar requests in the past, fans have had to wait until 2017 for the first full-length symphonic Brains concert to reach the stage. "On two occasions we've had the chance to take part in the work of MR2 Symphonic Live: in 2013, we mixed a Sting song with one of our own compositions, while in 2014 we performed the Hungarian version of our song Blazing in collaboration with Szabi Papp (Supernem), under the title Benned a tűz,” recall the members of the band. "It's been really exciting to hear our songs transform as classical instruments find their way in our music, but we've also seen that it's an enormous amount of work, an investment of energy almost the same as writing an album of new material. In spring 2017 we're putting out a new album, so we thought to ourselves, if we've got that much momentum going then let's make use of it, so we said yes to Müpa's flattering invitation.”
